The Erotomaniac : The Secret Life of Henry Spencer Ashbee, Paperback Book

The Erotomaniac : The Secret Life of Henry Spencer Ashbee Paperback

Description

Henry Spencer Ashbee seemed a prosperous and respectable Victorian gentleman.

But his well-upholstered chambers in Gray's Inn concealed a shocking secret: a vast collection of erotica and pornography, thousands of volumes strong.

This is an account of Victorian curiosity, repression and subverted desire.

Ian Gibson has created a portrait of Ashbeen which examines the evidence that Ashbeen himself may have been the author of the most famous work of Victorian erotica, "My Secret Life".
